New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has announced a ban on all large gatherings in New York City through September…..
…except for Black Lives Matter protests, which can go on at will.
I am not making this up. De Blasio actually said that to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on last night’s “The Situation Room” show.
In case you can’t believe it, in case you are assuming I must have it wrong (which would probably be my reaction to a statement as incredibly stupid as De Blasio’s) here is the video, from Ian Schwart’z article at realclearpolitics.com.
But is this the single stupidest thing De Blasio has said/done recently?
That’s hard to say, given that his “no bail, just let ’em out” policy with criminals has resulted in a huge spike in crime – especially murder – and his pledge to defund the police, coupled with his 17% reduction in the police budget next year is no doubt a key reason retirements from the force are up a staggering 400% from where they were last year. But it is definitely in the running.
Bill De Blasio is rapidly turning New York City into a sewer. An undesirable, wildly overpriced sewer which, due to the fact so many people are now working at home/don’t need physical proximity to their places of business, will now see a mass exodus of productive, taxpaying citizens from.
But not to worry. There are plenty of illegals to come in and make up the population slack.
That, folks, is The People’s Republic Of De Blasio. Brought to you buy a socialist/communist clown… whom the voters elected by a landslide. Twice.
They’re getting exactly what they voted for. I hope they’re enjoying it.
